Atomic PR for Intuit Personal Finance Group
Using Intuit’s Technology Doubles Bank Access, Completes Users’ Experience
Mountain View, Calif., April 19, 2010 – More than 3 million people use Mint.com to get a quick, comprehensive view of their banking and financial information. That view is available to millions more as Mint.com expands its reach to connect with virtually every bank, credit union and credit card account in the United States. Using the aggregation capabilities of Intuit Financial Services (formerly Digital Insight), Mint.com now provides transaction information from double the number of accounts, and automatically places it in categories to give people a complete picture of their finances.
“On average, Americans have 11 financial relationships, and if even one can’t be viewed within their Mint account, they lose some of the value of our product,” said Aaron Patzer, vice president and general manager of Intuit Inc.’s (Nasdaq: INTU) Personal Finance Group." Using Intuit's aggregation platform answers our customers’ top request: ‘Support my bank and make sure the information is more timely, and more accurate.’ We've done both in a big way."
With this added reach, Mint.com now connects securely and downloads transactions from virtually every U.S .bank with Internet banking capability. This means that Mint.com can now:
- Connect with more than 16,000 US financial institutions.
- Support more than 17 million individual financial accounts.
- Add the 20 top-requested financial institutions.
More information; better decisions
More than 90 percent of Mint.com users say they’ve changed their spending behavior after using the innovative financial software. Seeing accurate, comprehensive transactional data provides the insight required to make those changes.
Working with the Intuit–built technology guarantees the greatest access to secure, anonymous transactional data available in the market. Its industry-leading accuracy complements Mint.com’s categorization engine, delivering a clear view of how and where people spend in minutes.
“Intuit Financial Services directly serve banks, so its aggregations works better than anything else out there. This fact, and its extensive coverage, puts us leaps and bounds ahead of any other personal financial management software,” said Patzer. “This is an incredible benefit that results from Mint.com becoming part of Intuit. If you’ve tried Mint.com in the past and you couldn’t connect to one of your checking, savings, or credit card accounts, come back and check us out.”
